I’ve realised that I’ve become quite discerning about what pizzas I’m prepared to eat these days. I do also realise that people’s tastes in pizza are very diverse so what I enjoy will not appeal to everyone. My favourite pizza’s are Col’caccio pizzas. I love the thin base and they put on just the right amount of toppings.
I ate a pizza at Morituri in Claremont a little while ago. The base was similar to Col’caccio but there was too much cheese and topping on the pizza, completely overwhelming the base and making it very oily. I also tried a pizza at Call-a-Pizza in Seapoint Main Road recently. It was horrible with a very thick base and so much topping, 1 piece was enough for dinner.
So I was quite pleased when I stopped for pizza at Pizza Fair in the Old Constantia Village on Sunday night and had a fantastic pizza. It seems to be mainly a take out or collect place even though they do have several tables inside and outside. It seems like a waste of space to have all those table and chairs not being used. They did encourage us to stay and have our pizza there, which we did, but we still ordered from the counter.
I ordered the medium Chicken Supreme (Thai chicken, bacon, peppadews & mushroom – R55) with added Avocado (R8) and really, it was amazing. As I ate the first piece I knew my tastebuds were in for a treat. My friend had a large bacon, avo and feta (R60) which he enjoyed too.
The pizzas came really quickly too, which suited us as we were hungry and the smell of cooking pizzas was driving us crazy! While we were there, we saw a lot of people come in for pizza, so the place is obviously popular and I know why. They do also offer burgers, pastas, salads and a few other things.
It was a quick in and out experience, but the memory will linger and I look forward to going to Pizza Fair again when I am next hungry in Constantia.
